Horned Dorset Sheep

The Dorset or Dorset Horned breed of sheep is known mostly for its prolific lambing. It has been known to produce two lambing seasons per year: bred in May for lambs finished by the holidays, and bred again immediately after the first lambing to produce again in March or April.

    fantastic shot Sue. I wonder how he can see past the horns

  • Thanks Dave. I’m sure it can’t be easy for him to see. I would think those horns would be most uncomfortable. XXSUEXX

    He’s gorgeous, maybe he can try out for the Rams football team with that natural helmet!!! A fave!

  • LOL I’m REALLY glad you like this shot. It looks like he’s sticking his tongue out as if to say “stare all you want, but they are MY horns, and that’s what makes me ME”! Thank you so much for your support. XXSUEXX
